Aloha! Welcome to my Anahata Yoga home page!
I am passionate about yoga because its practice has enabled me to function at a higher level of health and feel a far greater sense of ease. I teach yoga because I like to help people overcome their health issues and experience the joys of true health in a body which feels great.
Yoga incorporates as many as several thousand exercises. However, yoga is not only for athletes and performers, nor is it meant to be a competition for getting into deep poses or about attaining maximum flexibility. Yoga is for everyone and it must be individualized. When appropriate poses are practiced properly, they have a healthful effect on the body and psyche, imparting pleasure and ease throughout. How much awareness we invest in what we do is of utmost importance—it’s a healthful practice we can enjoy with increasing success.
“Anahata” is a Sanskrit word representing the consciousness of love, empathy, selflessness and devotion. It is often associated with the heart. To me, this is the perfect expression of what yoga is about.
I am experienced in and incorporate some elements of:
• Ashtanga Yoga
• Vinyasa Yoga
• Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga
• Hatha Yoga
• Hot Yoga
• Iyengar Yoga
• Tri Yoga
I work with groups in classes and with individuals one-on-one. I guide students through yoga poses that are suited to the individual’s condition and abilities in an anatomically sound way in accordance with each student’s mind-body needs. My aim is for everyone to have a good, health-promoting experience.
